Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to install carpet?

If you’re ready to bring new life into your house with a makeover from the ground up, you’re ready to learn more about carpet installation costs. Installation costs vary greatly, depending on a number of factors such as the type of carpet, the number of square yards, any necessary repair work, the number of stairs you have, and where you live. Due to these variables, the national average cost of carpet installation ranges between $200 and $4,500.

To start planning for your new carpet, measure roughly how many square yards of carpet you’ll need. Research the main carpet styles and materials you like to get a feel for what they cost. Nylon carpets are typically the least expensive, and wool is one of the higher-end carpets. Prices per square foot might range from under $2 to over $10, depending on materials. Count the number of stairs you want carpeted; each one might average between $3 and $10 (or more for box steps). Carpet removal can be an added cost as well, averaging $1-$4 per square yard, depending on the company and regional disposal costs. 

How much is the cheapest carpet?

If you’re looking to reduce carpet installation costs, there are several ways to save. Start by considering your carpeting needs. Manufactured materials such as polyester and nylon will be cheaper than natural fibers such as wool. From big box retailers, starting prices for olefin-based carpet are approximately 50 cents per square foot — making the cost under $5 per square yard. Indoor carpets made with olefin fibers are typically the least expensive on the market. Keep in mind that olefin fibers are not as soft on bare feet as other fibers, so are often used in areas like basements, playrooms or indoor patios. Nylon and polyester are good options to reduce carpet installation costs while still creating a cozy feel. The face weight, fiber construction and density of a carpet all affect the cost per square foot. The cheapest nylon or polyester carpets can start at just under $2 per square foot, making them about $18 per square yard. Lower-cost carpet tends to wear out more quickly and show stains more easily, so avoid light colors and vacuum regularly to keep the fibers clear of dirt that might age it too quickly.

How much does it cost to carpet a bedroom?

If you’re building a new home, remodeling, or ready for new carpet in your bedroom, you’ll want to know carpet installation costs. Here are the factors that affect the cost of your new bedroom carpet:

  • Installation cost per square yard: From under $2 to over $6. Carpet companies have a labor cost per square foot for installing your new carpet. Depending on where you live in the country, that rate can vary greatly. This rate does not include the cost of the carpet.
  • Type of carpet: from $1 per square foot to $20 or more per square foot. The fibers that make up your carpet will have a direct effect on cost. As an example, specialty wool carpets may start at about $10 per square foot, while a manufactured fiber like nylon may be about $2 per square foot.
  • Removal of old carpet: from $1 to $4 per square yard. Old carpet is labor-intensive to remove and also costs money to dispose of or recycle. The cost to remove carpet will depend on how much carpet you need removed and whether your installation pros offer a discounted rate for installing your new carpet at the same time.
  • Subfloor repair: from $40 to $70 per hour (plus materials cost). If the flooring underneath your old carpet is damaged, it must be repaired before the new carpet is installed. Many carpet pros can offer this service, or you can hire a handyman to handle the job.  
  • Type of carpet pad: $1 per square yard and up, depending on the thickness. The cost to install carpet pad is typically included with the labor cost per yard of installing the carpet itself.

How much does it cost to install carpet on stairs?

The number of stairs you want carpeted in your home will directly affect your carpet installation cost. Putting carpet on stairs generally increases the labor time and requires a higher degree of detail than laying carpet flat. Where you live in the country also plays a role in your carpet installation cost. Carpet installation companies in smaller towns with a lower cost of living and a lower cost to do business (insurance, company vehicles, employee labor, etc.) can usually offer their customers lower rates than companies in large cities where the cost of living and the cost to do business are higher. Carpet pros will often quote you a flat rate per stair once they do a site visit to provide an estimate. They’ll take into account the size of each stair you want carpeted (including both the step and the riser), and what type of stair it is. For example, the cost might range between $3 and $10 per stair for labor only. On the higher end of the spectrum, box stairs or staircase stairs with spindles that must be worked around might cost between $15 and $25 per stair.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a flooring professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To safely set up a consultation or appointment with a flooring professional and avoid the risk of transmitting COVID-19, start with an online search. Contact the professional through a message and ask to set up a video or phone call to discuss the project. This lets the professional visualize what needs to be done without physically needing to be there. Discuss the project’s timeline, budget, virtual payment capabilities and adherence to guidelines set forth locally and by the CDC.

Can I use digital payments to pay for floor installation, replacement or repairs?

Many local flooring professionals offer digital payments to conduct transactions for floor repairs, installation, replacement and more. This trend has been increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is prompting flooring professionals to take payments through Venmo, Square Cash, PayPal, Google Pay, Zelle and other convenient platforms. 

To ensure you can safely pay for the service, contact the professional beforehand and ask which services are acceptable. Take any measures necessary to comply with guidelines on social distancing.

Do flooring professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Because flooring work has to be done in-person, flooring professionals are typically unable to perform work virtually. If you come across a pro's profile that states they're offering remote services, message the pro to see what those services include.

If you plan to get indoor flooring installed once the pandemic is over, you can ask potential flooring specialists if they host virtual consultations through video calls and digital messaging. Compare flooring professionals in your area online to find the right fit, and book an appointment.

How can I find out if a flooring professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a flooring professional is considered an essential service in the current coronavirus pandemic, consult your city or state’s government website. To get a sense of the national recommendations, check CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage

This page lists 16 different infrastructure sectors that are officially considered essential during this time. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. Ultimately, you should consult with your local government. 

Does a flooring professional need to enter my home?

If the flooring project is located inside your residence, performing the job would require the flooring professional to enter your home. This is not recommended by the CDC during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, if a flooring project takes place in a separate location outside of your home, the flooring professional will not need to enter your home. 

Talk to flooring professionals in your area to see if it’s necessary for them to enter your home. If so, you might want to postpone the project until social distancing guidelines are relaxed by the government.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a flooring professional when social distancing?

If you hire a flooring professional for an outdoor project, you may be able to avoid person-to-person contact with the pro. If you hire a pro for an indoor job, avoid physical contact, sanitize surfaces and use virtual payments like PayPal, Venmo, Google Pay and Square Cash App to complete transactions instead of using cash or checks. Determine a strategy with the flooring professional when you contact them.

Marvin and his team installed about 1700 square feet worth of luxury vinyl plank flooring (including stairs) in our new home. The guys were extremely hard working and did a beautiful job! We are in love with our new floors and are beyond pleased with the price! I didn’t find another company that even came close to being as reasonable as Marvin’s Hardwood Floors. Great value for great work! I would absolutely recommend this awesome team!

They did an outstanding job. Removed and replaced carpet in entire second floor of my home, showed up on time, did a terrific job, and were very reasonable in their fees. I would highly recommend this company, as he and his son work hard to earn your business and maintain their honest reputation.

Great experience working with Rich. He actually arrived early for our consult which is rare for most contractors. He walked us through the whole process and gave us great advice with the color samples he provided for us. I feel very comfortable referring him for your flooring needs.

After multiple estimates and offers which varied greatly. Their quote and another were very close. I chose them after reading the reviews - and I made a great choice. Price included installation, removal of carpet, moving of big furniture, and materials needed except flooring which we bought. They were quick to get me an estimate and then let me make a decision without any pressure. They were able to start just as soon as I had the floor delivered which they were willing to go get for us. They showed up with plenty of manpower (we were lucky as another job was delayed so more workers for us) and ready to move our furniture upstairs which was not needed as we decided to do it ourselves so they could start sooner. Carpet removal was done with no damage to the walls or baseboards. They did not disappoint and were able to put the an entire upstairs of 3 rooms and a hallway with bamboo flooring in ONE day. We were originally quoted FOUR days to include stairs to complete the job. TWO days for stairs alone. Our stairs were not done due to waiting on special snubnose that was to arrive here later in August which was not a problem as they stated to let them know when it would arrive and they would complete the job. The finishing to include painting of quarter round is to be completed when the stairs are done at our choice (they filled the nail holes and tidied up the quarter round and did the transition work as well already at our request instead of waiting) so we moved our furniture back in. (Painting of quarter round and baseboards is a small extra price as they hire it out). We paid for the work done and owe them the amount for the stairs. I was worried when trying to choose an installer as we had issues in the past, but they have exceeded my expectations and then some. Calling or texting Eduardo gets an almost immediate response. They are a family owned business who takes pride in their work and it shows. We will use them again as we already bought the flooring for an additional room upstairs to be done at a later time. Wife already wants to have rooms done downstairs now based on the work done upstairs. Will update review once work is complete.

The owner Willy bid on my flooring project. He went over all the details and his bid was extremely competitive. After interviewing several companies for the job I kept coming back to Willy’s bid. He told me “he would treat this as if it was his Home.” He wasn’t lying, he absolutely treated my project as if it was his own house and took meticulous care of every aspect of the job. Willy and Robert actually did the work, not a subcontractor. They were always on time and typically worked 10 + hours a day. I never leave my house when people are working in it… never… Having said that, I felt comfortable leaving my house with Willy and Robert. It was a 4 day job and half the time I wasn’t at home. They are some of the most respectable people I have met doing this type of work. They did an amazing job and I WILL hire them again.

Mario and Dora are good people. I cannot say that about his workers. I know about one for sure that worked at my house. So make sure to tell Mario exactly what you want and how you want things done at your place so he can direct his workers. Other than that I think mostly everything went well. There is a little miscommunication due to the language issues. I will definitely invite him back to my house if I have any other flooring needs. He only gives 6 months warranty but initially when I spoke to him/his wife Dora I thought he said 1 yr , but on the contract papers it is listed for 6 months. Later he agreed to extend it to 8 months for me. I think he should offer at least one year as every one else.other than that I have all praise for his professional work.
